Hi YouTubers on BHW, I have been trying to rank some of my videos on YT lately. I am not very old on BHW but have been in web marketing since last 15 years with moderate success. I started making videos only in this year though and have been trying to rank in YT. For 2 of my videos which are in competitive niche, I am trying to rank my videos. These are 2 word keyphrases and have got 30k & 19k exact match search on YT itself per month as per the YT keyword tool. By doing appropriate tagging & giving good titles, by giving decent social signals like 500 G +1's, 100 tweets and 100 FB shares, both these videos started ranking on second page of YT search within about 2 weeks. I had also given these 2 videos about 100 shares from within YouTube using the social sharing buttons below the video. Then I gave the 2 videos a view spike, high retention views (98% retention) and bam in the next YT indexing, both the videos went out of the serps. Not even in first 15 pages and I could see videos there with 50 views uploaded 6 months ago ranking in 6th or 7th page. Does that mean YT penalised for getting sudden view spike? I gave around 10k views for 2 days from a good provider here in BHW. Has anyone experienced such reverse results after buying views? Is this something new in the YT algo which is trying to put down videos which buy views? YouTubers and BHW members with insight, please help!! Thanks for sharing any info.
